Remember the day Spider-Man was revealed for the PlayStation? We got an entire showcase of around eight-minutes of gameplay. The game was a massive hit at the time. It was just a question of time before we finally get our next entry. Surprisingly, we are getting a spin-off for the PlayStation 5 release. A short teaser gave us a glimpse of what we can expect but that was all. Now, the latest PlayStation showcase gave us an entire seven-minute gameplay trailer showing just how the next-generation console will make the game stand out even more.
Miles Morales takes place a year after the events of the original. Miles’ mother started a political career through which she ends up in the crossfires of a gang war. High-tech goons from the energy-corporation Roxxon and the inventor known as the Tinkerer start to terrorize the city. This power struggle will force the young Spider-Man’s hand in protecting his new hometown of Harlem.
Miles looks to play similarly to Peter but that is just on the surface. He has his own abilities like a venom sting that will give him a different edge in combat. It’s also amazing to see how fluid the game switches between cutscenes and actual gameplay footage. This will be quite the Holiday release for the console.
